Emotional times: Stacey Solomon broke down in tears and announced she is taking a break from Instagram as she and her family are unable to see her sick grandma in hospital
‘It means the world. I’m going to spend the weekend helping my mum get things together and in place so I’ll be off my stories.
‘I love you all to the moon and back and I can’t wait to see all of you Monday if all goes well. Have a lovely weekend. You deserve it.’

Stacey is the mother to sons Zachary, 12, Leighton, eight, and 17-month-old Rex, and she has been keeping busy with her children as she tries to focus on ‘happy thoughts’ instead of her grandma’s illness.
She said: ‘We are thinking of you grandma ALWAYS, and hoping and praying that when this lockdown is over we can safely come and celebrate your birthday with you next month…

The mother-of-three added: ‘We are thinking of you grandma ALWAYS, and hoping and praying that when this lockdown is over we can safely come and celebrate your birthday with you next month…’
‘For now, I’m going to keep myself busy as much as possible and think happy thoughts…’
It has been an emotional week for Stacey as she broke down in tears last Friday after she was gifted a special book from small companies.
The TV presenter admitted she ‘hasn’t stopped crying’ as she treated her Instagram followers to a peek inside the thoughtful present.
The mother-of-three grew emotional as she said: ‘Now I’ve got to stop reading this book. Thank you I love it.’
Stacey highlighted that the latest lockdown had a negative effect on the growth of certain companies, as she added: ‘I know there’s so many small businesses that I haven’t gotten round to mentioning that really need help at the moment, so I’m just going to keep sharing as many as I can.
‘Maybe when small business really kindly offer to send us gifts, I can put it in a competition.
‘So I can share their page and competition and also give other people a chance to win that kind of stuff. Anyways, love you loads!’
